  • Call for Visual and Performing Artists to Partner with Artists with Disabilities
    August 15, 2018
    Application Deadline: August 31

    Creative Clay is excited to report that we are producing the Artlink apprenticeship project this year. We haven't done a full-scale Artlink project for several years due to a lack of funding but, thanks to an NEA grant, we're back at it!

    If you've never heard of Artlink, the project pairs professional artists with artists with disabilities and they work together for several months to produce a body of work that is then displayed at a local museum or gallery in St. Petersburg.

    We are looking for artists working in all mediums, including performing arts.

    We have funding for 10 Artlink pairs this year, so we are looking for 10 professional artist participants. The artists will be compensated $25 an hour and work approximately four hours per week, for four to five months.

    Interested artists should email their resume and examples of their work to marcy@creativeclay.org by August 31.
    More details can be found here.

  • Guggenheim Fellowship
    August 9, 2018
    Deadline: September 17

    Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.

    The Foundation receives approximately 3,000 applications each year. Although no one who applies is guaranteed success in the competition, there is no prescreening: all applications are reviewed. Approximately 175 Fellowships are awarded each year.

    Guggenheim Fellowships are grants to selected individuals made for a minimum of six months and a maximum of twelve months. Since the purpose of the Guggenheim Fellowship program is to help provide Fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, grants are made freely. No special conditions attach to them, and Fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary to their work. The United States Internal Revenue Service, however, does require the Foundation to ask for reports from its Fellows at the end of their Fellowship terms.

    During the rigorous selection process, applicants will first be pooled with others working in the same field, and examined by experts in that field: the work of artists will be reviewed by artists, that of scientists by scientists, that of historians by historians, and so on. The Foundation has a network of several hundred advisers, who either meet at the Foundation offices to look at applicants’ work, or receive application materials to read offsite. These advisers, all of whom are themselves former Guggenheim Fellows, then submit reports critiquing and ranking the applications in their respective fields. Their recommendations are then forwarded to and weighed by a Committee of Selection, which determines the number of awards to be made in each area. Occasionally, no application in a given area is considered strong enough to merit a Fellowship.

    The Committee of Selection then forwards its recommendations to the Board of Trustees for final approval. The successful candidates in the United States and Canada competition are announced in early April.

    The online application can be found at competition.gf.org/applicant.

    More information can be found at gf.org.

  • New Tampa Players Seek Special Needs Performers, Director, Project Coordinator
    July 18, 2018
    New Tampa Players community theatre is seeking performers and a creative team for The Penguin Project.

    Established in 2004, Penguin Project gives children with special needs the opportunity to be on stage. All roles in a Penguin Project production are filled with artists with special needs, including Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities visual impairment, hearing impairment, and other neurological disorders.

    They are joined on stage by a dedicated group of “peer mentors” – children the same age without disabilities who have volunteered to work side-by-side with them through 4 months of rehearsals and through the final performance.

    By providing access to community theater, The Penguin Project demonstrates that the special challenges of a disability should not handicap a child’s ability to participate in life’s experiences.
    • What is the production schedule like?
    The production starts with an informational meeting in December, where the artists, the peer mentors, the parents, and the production team meet and learn about the program.

    During the next four months, there are usually 3-4 rehearsals a week that are no longer than 90 minutes. During each rehearsal, each artist has a peer mentor who learns right alongside with him or her. The peer mentors learn all of blocking, lines, and choreography and work with their artist. Some rehearsals are for the ensemble, some are for the leads, but all are fun.

    As the production dates near, rehearsals will move to include all artists and peer mentors. Three  exciting performances are planned for the weekend of April 4, 5 and 6 of 2019.
    • The New Tampa Players are seeking:
    Peer Mentors: If you are between the ages of 8 and 21 and have some theatre onstage experience, we would love to have you involved with the Penguin Project. We will be happy to complete paperwork for community service or volunteer hours for school or church.

    If you are interested or know someone, please contact us at president@newtampaplayers.org

  • Call to Professional and Student Artists: Embracing Our Differences
    May 29, 2018
    DEADLINE: October 15

    Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate and affect change around the world.

    Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences has used the power of art and prose to promote diversity. One way we accomplish this is through our annual international art exhibition in Sarasota’s Bayfront Park.

    This juried exhibit consists of 45 billboard-size images. Each work of art is created by local, national and international artists reflecting their interpretation of our theme, “Enriching Lives Through Diversity and Inclusion.”

    Winning artworks combine a deep understanding of both medium and message. Awards are given for “Best-in-Show Adult,” “Best-in-Show Student,” and “People’s Choice” categories, with the last chosen by visitors to the exhibit. Adult winners each receive $1,000; students receive $1,000 to be directed to their school’s art program.

    The statements accompanying each artwork are also vital and provide insight into our common humanity—as well as the differences that make us all unique. In 2017, 212,000 people visited the exhibition—bringing the total amount of visitors to 2.5 million since 2004.

    The 2019 exhibit will be displayed from January 19 through March 14, 2019, in Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota.

    Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a world where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this exciting change through your visual art submission to the annual Embracing Our Differences international juried competition.

    Submission requirements and past winning entries are available at embracingourdifferences.org/submit-art.

    Direct link to “Submit Art” page is at embracingourdifferences.org/call-for-artists.

There is also an opportunity for kinetic artwork to be installed in large signature trees along East Ocean Avenue. The Avenue of the Arts stretches for more than seven blocks in the City’s downtown cultural district. Selected artwork will be displayed on lighted pedestals and included in the promotion, advertising and marketing of the year-long event. Each selected artist will receive $1,000.00 per artwork selected to cover delivery and installation of the artwork. Artists are responsible for the delivery, installation and loan of the artwork. The City can assist with this service as part of the stipend. All artwork is for sale with a 30% contribution to the Art in Public Places program.
